How To Apply Primer | Tips & Tricks To Make It Last
Makeup primers may not seem like the most necessary item, and sometimes your bank account doesn’t allow for it. But you might be wondering why makeup artists use primer so much. Simply put, primer is the one item that sets all the other makeup on your face… so it’s pretty important. Think of it as spanx which you wear to shape your body perfectly for that slim-fitting dress.
Unfortunately, if you want a good primer, it’s not the cheapest thing out there. So here are 8 tips and tricks on how to apply primer to maximize its use!
1. Try A Tinted Formula
If your skin is—and there’s no pretty word for it—dull, light pink primers, like Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer, add a beautiful glow. Lilac shades (found in Revlon PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer) brighten sallow skin, and green formulas (like Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Correcting Primer in Green) neutralize redness.
2. Less Is More
You don’t need to coat your face with this stuff. “When you overload on primer, it pills under your foundation,” says makeup artist Sandy Linter. A small drop (the size of a raisin) is plenty. Gently rub into the skin for even coverage.
3. Treat Your Eyes
Gently patted around the eyes and on the lids, primer acts as a three-in-one. It prevents makeup from smudging or creasing by absorbing oils, it softens crow’s-feet, and it counteracts redness. We like Jane Iredale Lid Primer.
